Watercolour Courses at Windrush Gallery
Courses for 2017/2018
Day Courses: £80, including
buffet lunch, tea & home-made cake
Residential courses: various prices, depending on B&B
requirements; day rates also available
Our One-Day Courses are designed to assist
students who are familiar with painting in watercolour,
but would like to improve their techniques and add 'atmosphere'
to their work. All abilities are most welcome, whether
you paint regularly or have not picked up a brush for
Windrush is the ideal location for watercolour
courses, surrounded by unspoilt Cotswold countryside
and a short walk from the picturesque River Windrush.
The Georgian house, former home of James Fletcher-Watson,
R.I., R.B.A., has a large studio space, an elegant dining
room for lunch and refreshments, and extensive gardens.
A welcome coffee is served from 9.45am
and the class begins with a demonstration in the studio
Gallery, usually followed by sketching and/or painting
out of doors in the garden or the village. A delicious
home-made buffet lunch is served in the dining room,
and afterwards course members will complete their own
location or studio pictures. Small classes (maximum
10) allow the tutor to give guidance to each course
member. The day concludes with tea and a summing-up.
